    u no, all coms are the same... they use the same materials for their motherboards etc. My school recently made a purchase of 455 DELLs to replace Acer coms. I belive that the school must have made the purchase because they found DELL reliable.
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    They invited me to their factory in Penang. Pretty impressive. They will only make a pc or notebook upon receiving an order.

    wah..... dun be so niao lah.....

    ok, when I had my dell laptop, service was excellent, just call and the guys will come with the parts to replace at my home, so far exchanged

    1) screen,
    2) motherboard
    3) battery
    4) trackpad

    because the servicing is done by 3rd party, they just want to solve the problem ASAP, hence usually they just do a swap for the problematic part. So they don't waste your time to diagnose diagnose........ to find the cheapest part to replace etc.....

    although I don't work for Dell, I have used Dell for a long time, and several other brands too, including IBM. all these things aside, do you actually have data, statistics, or evidence of any sort for you to arrive at such a statement?

    I would gladly trade my thinkpad for your Dell

    also be sure to specify the 802.11g option card which is only like $54. Beats the sh!t out of my little 802.11b on the thinkpad.

    arh....what's the different between 802.11g and 802.11b? I didn't notice the little g and b different until you mentioned it!

    11g = 54Mbps
    11b = 11Mbps

    in actual use you can get about 50-60% throughput, so if you're doing computer-to-computer backup of big files (like RAW files) it'll take forever on 11b (only ~5Mbps).

    My desktop and laptop are both from Dell. After too much gaming, my laptop's keyboard spoilt, and they came down to fix it without any fuss (still within warrantry period). Good service My Inspiron laptop is going on to its 4th year now and is still going strong, other than the keyboard thingy.

    Think Dell is a good option for computer idiots like me... just call, tell them what you intend to do with it, and out comes a nice customised package (with a price, of course.)
